I understand. I hope get a nice longbeard. I am out in Berkshire County in Western MA. Pittsfield, Lenox, Lee, Tyringham, etc. Lots of birds out here. I love it. Good luck.

Rolled one today... he came right in to my decoy and calls... first thing in the morning. I put the bead on him, squeezed the trigger, and he went down like a ton of bricks. Usually I run right at them after I shoot and step on their heads, etc., but this time i started to gather my stuff. Then the bird flopped up and ran / flew away... I couldn't believe it... I must have just stunned him good.
Needless to say, I'm not a happy person this morning...
